Sulzbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Or a lion passant Gules, beneath Azure a fish Argent.
The village had been an Imperial fiefdom. The privileges were divided between the Benedictine Monastery of Murrhardt and the Counts of Löwenstein. Attempts to gain city rights around 1400 remained defunct. The first seals are from 1611, when the town was ruled by the Counts of Löwenstein-Wetheim-Freudenberg. The arms from 1906 were based on the oldest seal, the tinctures were fixed before 1930. The lion is taken from the family arms of the Counts of Löwenstein (younger branch line). The fsh is alluding to riches of fish in the Murr River and the importance of fishery.
